Did you know that I wrote a book (well, I’ve written two, Pregnancy and Fibromyalgia and Melissa vs Fibromyalgia: My Journey Fighting Chronic Pain, Chronic Fatigue and Insomnia)? It was a bucket list goal to write a book and a more recent life goal to write a book to share my experience of fibromyalgia in case it helps others.
In this book I provided templates and these are available in the free resources page (along with many other resources) that you can sign up for here.

These templates are all mentioned in my book Melissa vs Fibromyalgia: My Journey Fighting Chronic Pain, Chronic Fatigue and Insomnia. This book is everything that I have researched, trialed and experienced in seven years of actively fighting this illness and over a decade living with the symptoms of it. I wrote this book in the hope that it helps even one other person not lose so long to the pain and fatigue – I lost the entirety of my twenties until I realised that the only person who was going to fight this illness was myself. No doctor would take the lead here. I became my own researcher, advocate, scientist and lead carer in one. It has made all the difference.
My Sleep Diary
My Passion Worksheet
This takes you through questions like what do I really enjoy to do? and what would my ideal day look like? so that you can see how you can incorporate your passions into your new life. Find the template here.
My Supplement Log
So that you can track and log supplements you might decide to try. I find it really important to keep a list of those I’ve tried (because I forget) and to track how they might have helped me, because supplements can be costly so we want to be taking the most effective ones. Find it here.
My Support Worksheet
Support is vital to us as human beings and fibromyalgia can be isolating. In this sheet we work through our support options such as creating a plan for the harder days. I found it enormously helpful to have a pre-written plan for flare days in ascending order of ability so that I didn’t have to think about what to do (I tend to quietly panic when the pain gets severe). Find the template here.
As I said above, these are available in the free Resources page that you can sign up for here, there are also several printable reports and other resources in here to help you on your journey.
I hope all of these resources help you in your fight.
